Dog Myth #5

Myth No. 5: You should feed your dog according to the label instructions.

The label is just a starting point.

“An extremely active dog or one with a high metabolism may require more. A less active dog would need less food to avoid becoming overweight,” says Mary Jo Wagner, attending veterinarian at Argosy University in Eagan, Minn.

Ask your vet what’s right for your dog. If your dog is at a healthy body weight, you should be able to feel his ribs easily beneath the skin.
